    cheeky fuckers.

    You should let them film, then take out an injunction to stop them showing the final product on the day of broadcast :D

    We used to get regular letters through the door back in the day when The Bill was in production asking for permission to use our place for about £200 a day but I couldn't be arsed with the hassle. Although I do know of one person on these boards who got a fair wedge and put up in a hotel to use their place for a couple of days and they did sort it ok afterwards. But I have a massive distrust of people who work in TV and films, mostly cos I know some of them :D

    That reminds me of a story when they filmed The Long Good Friday,in the house I lived in.At about seven in the morning they were all out drinking coffee and eating Danish's and what ever when the the Northampton regional crime squad busted the house next door (something about stolen teles and some idiot giving the address, for about an hour it was like Carry on Constable.

    I think I remember getting things through the door about filming The Bill, actually. Never took them up on it.

    I think of it as the Fair Deal because that's what it was called for the first gig I saw there

    Oh, they've finally finished repaving Stockwell Passage; and installed one of those bollards that doubles up as a bicycle pump.

    Or maybe it's something for the new arriving giants? A toothpick perhaps.

    Glad it's finished. That must be the longest bit of re-paving EVAH! Took about 4 months to do about 20 yards. As soon as they'd finished it though, they handily blocked the cycle path with loads of pallets full of stone. Good there's a cycle pump there, I'll have to try it out.

    It's great that there's a pump there but it's a bit close to Brixton Cycles. It might have been better placed elsewhere. I must have cycled past it yesterday on the way to the shop to pump up my tyres

    That's a reasonable point, but I guess at least it's accessible when BC is closed :)

    BC constantly have their pump broken or pinched so more is always a good thing. Besides I always seem to remember I need one on their late opening thursdays.

    The double yellows have disappeared though, as have the shared lane signs; and the massive delivery lorry wasblocking the whole road again this week.

    Saw a tight trousered type strutting down Coldharbour Lane today, consulting his iPad in one hand, while snapping arty pics with an expensive camera in t'other.

    :cool:

    Would have been such a shame if you'd been concentrating so hard on updating your Facebook status on your iPad that you'd tripped over and fallen face first into a big puddle.

    ha, shit catching trews. I had to help two very lost Italian tourists yesterday who were walking up to people on CHL saying 'franco?'. I showed them where pizza was but in hindsight I wonder if they were looking for a friend and not dinner.

    A little depressing to see that the "Brixton square" or whatever they're calling The Rich Twat Manor Highrise Place is actually starting to be built. They aren't wasting any time!

    Anyone after a bit of design work for money?

    The Brixton Mind body Soul event organisers ( 28th July, Brixton Market on Station Road) are looking for help with designing a logo to put on a banner and possibly stickers. The event is all about involving the local community, and being mindful as we go about our days.
    If you're available to work on this please contact Tamara Russell (tamara.russell@kcl.ac.uk) asap - it's quick turnaround in time for the event. Cheers.

    It took some dexterity, but he really was doing just that. And, to be honest, looked an absolute cock.

    I have a letter from Tesco. :mad:

    They would like to build a new tesco express with parking at 144 Brixton Hill. This appears to be the address of the Music Bar. They want me to know that this is to provide convenience shopping for nearby residents, 20 full and part-time jobs for local residents, that the presence of staff reduces anti-social behaviour, that they simply love funding local things and to let them know if there are any I'd like them to fund before the store opens and they promise to consider it.

    They say there is already permission for a convenience store here but they need planning permission for some changes, ie parking on the existing hard standing area and signage and changes to store front.

    :mad: This will be closer to me than my usual convenience shops so I will probably end up going there sometimes.
